Doctrinal Statement

RightNow Ministries operates under the grace of Almighty God. We serve local churches that represent diverse traditions and denominational affiliations. Our desire is to work in harmony on the basis of the essential doctrines listed below.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God.

One God

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, both fully God and fully human. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died as the sacrificial substitute to pay for the penalty of sin, physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and He will one day physically return.


God created man and woman in His perfect image with equality across lines of ethnicity, gender, and class.


All humanity, Christ excluded, is sinful by both birth and action.

Penalty of Sin

The deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death.


Salvation from sin comes only as gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin.


Both the saved and the lost will be resurrected to their final judgment before God. Those who, in their earthly life, turned from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward. Those who did not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment.
